If you use the reply option from the actions menu, underneath the box where you enter the text there is an attachments button. You can click on that to append pictures. Hopefully that helps!

I got those hooks at the hardware store. They are NOT the aluminum carabiners that you often see. They are steel and actually have little overlapping hooks that prevent it from opening under stress.

Tying down is easier with these. Just clip one end on the ring on the plane and the other end cable or tie down ring and pull it tight. I’ve been at a couple of airports that had rings too big for my clips, so made a loop in the rope and hooked on to that. On another airport I slid it under the embedded ring and hooked it to itself.

Hope you get lots of opportunities to use the straps!

Here is what mine look like. I think the capacity was like 500 pounds or so.

Larry, can you post a picture of those hooks/clips?
Also, is there any certain strength that those hooks need to be rated at?
Thanks,
Bob
